Competency-based education (CBE) serves as a way for students to advance at their own pace and a way to match course competencies and outcomes with industry standards. This session discusses the redesign of a course within the context of a competency-based curriculum redesign to align course competencies with industry expectations. The goal of this project was to align a program’s courses with a national organization’s competency model. To do this, a program curriculum crosswalk was created. The crosswalk provides assurance for students and employers that when students complete the program, they have been exposed to and have met all of the training and development professional competencies defined by the Association for Talent Development. Mapping each course to its related competency required the revision and addition of course activities; however, each course is more closely aligned to industry standards after these revisions. Students completing the newly-revised courses are better prepared for careers in the training and development sector. Looking across the program to a specific course, EAC 580, we redesigned this course in the context of the following challenges: (1) the need to align the course carefully with national competencies as part of a competency-based redesign of all the program courses; (2) the need to ensure the course was flexible enough to be taught by multiple instructors; (3) the desire to convert the course from a 15-week regular semester to a 5-week summer session with minimal changes; and (4) the desire to build synchronous and asynchronous connections with students.
